Benevolent Day for Cascade Medical’s critical equipment needs

Posted

LEAVENWORTH - The Pub at the Club, located at the Leavenworth Golf Course, will host a Benevolent Day on Thursday, March 14, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with proceeds benefiting the Cascade Medical Foundation. 

"This will be our first event at The Pub at the Club, so we’re looking forward to it and hope it might lead to other events there in the future,” Nevonne McDaniels with the Cascade Medical Foundation said.

Attendees can enjoy great food, a wonderful view, and contribute to a worthy cause.

“Our Benevolent Events are so fun, knowing you’re helping a good cause removes any guilt over taking the family out to dinner, and inviting the neighbors along,” she said.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Cascade Medical Foundation's campaign to purchase a new hematology (blood) analyzer for Cascade Medical's lab. 

This vital piece of equipment is used 20 to 30 times a day at Cascade Medical. It provides a complete blood count, which is a first step in screening patient health and the most-requested lab test at Cascade. 

This “blood cell” detective provides 18 numeric results, identifying infection, anemia and other serious conditions that warrant follow up for both clinic and hospital patients.

The lab’s current machine needs to be replaced. The machine’s importance pushed the project to the top of the Foundation’s fundraising list for 2024. The upgraded version also will provide new testing options, making it even more valuable in guiding patient treatment.
